Welcome to Walker Community!

Located in the Bradshaw Mountains, south of Prescott, AZ, Walker Community is an old mining district, filled with history. It’s named after Joseph Walker, mountain man, explorer, and guide. He led a party to this valley to discover gold in the summer of 1863.

Today, the valley is filled with rustic cabins and elegant homes. There’s a vibrant community of people here, with an active social calendar. Some live here full-time, while others have second homes here.

Everyone loves it here. The community is great, with pancake breakfasts and things like that.

We’re all friends, (except for a few crazy ones.)

Internet is best by https://www.walkerwifi.com/. They are solid and dependable, with fast speeds and no data limits.

Cell phone is best through “Call by WiFi” on your phone, through your personal router connected to Walker WiFi.

Verizon does the best straight cell service, but it’s dicey. The higher you go, the better cell reception you get.

TV is by satellite or streaming Internet. We have DirectTV.

We are unincorporated, so the building department is through the county, not Prescott city.

Water is from wells or hauled water. Wells can be private or shared by multiple parcels.

There are a few companies that haul water, and a few more that drill and maintain wells.

The higher the parcel, the better the view, and the farther you have to drill for water, and the more you pay for the well.

Everything is on septic. Make sure you get a permit from the county, which will mandate set backs and other stuff.

Trash collection is dumpsters at the fire station. You pay a yearly fee for the combination to the locks to dump your trash.

Mail delivery is at group mailboxes around the area. FedEx and UPS deliver to your door in most places out here.

We personally have a PO Box in town for important stuff. That’s a personal preference.

Here’s a list of all of the property for sale in Walker, houses and land, although you can filter that.

Wildfire prevention is everyone’s responsibility

PRESCOTT, AZ – April 16, 2021— The Prescott National Forest wants to remind our visitors about the importance of campfire safety and your part in preventing human-caused wildland fires. Warmer temperatures and spring winds are increasing fire danger across Arizona.

Please be vigilant of the high winds and rising temperatures and avoid using anything with an open flame or a spark. #OneLessSpark

If mowing grass down, use a string-style trimmer rather than a lawn mower as the blades can strike rock and produce a spark.

Make sure that your chain saw […]

It’s a White Valentine’s Day

Walker received another 5 inches of snow last night.

After the 4 feet we got a few weeks ago, this is nothing.

It’s enough to make everything beautiful out there.

It’s going to be a sunny day today, so it will probably all melt by tomorrow.

Be careful driving around.

These photos are of a hawk in the tree off our deck, enjoying the view.
